Back Orders: Fossa (Cryptoprocta forex)
Jennifer’s stuck on a bus, so I’m posting this one for her. No, really, she is.
This one was requested by Russell.
This little cat-like carnivore is endemic to Madagascar. It spends most of its time sleeping, which is why Jennifer didn’t draw its amazing brown eyes. Now she wishes she had. But I like this little tyke just the way she is! What do you think?
Thanks,Ted! The bus is moving now at least. The reason it seems like the fossa sleeps a lot is because it’s nocturnal and I am not. They do have really neat eyes with the narrowest slit-like pupils. Sanderson says they have an unpleasant disposition but can be tamed. This drawing also got out of control color-wise.
Well, I disagree with your assessment of the color — I think it turned out great!
I was thinking, do you think Sanderson’s interest in cryptozoology came from studying this cryptoprocta?
No. No, I don’t think he was that easily confused.
